Why is eyeliner so difficult to get perfectly even, you guys? The following situation is sadly too familiar to many of us:

Total FML moment, right? Last week while fixing my uneven eyeliner, I found an effective and really simple fix.
Here’s our starting point. The liner on the right side is drooping and not as lifted. You wanna fix that; it’s not cute.
So everyone and their mother already knows and loves the awesome Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micelle Solution for sensitive skin. There’s also her sister Bioderma Sébium H2O ($22, in drugstores) for combination/oily skin, which is what I’m using today.
I like you, Bioderma Sébium H2O.
Next: Q-tips, right? Wrong. I don’t know about you, but I have a hard time using Q-tips for precise makeup removal. It’s just messy to me. The cotton soaks up a lot of makeup remover, ruining my makeup more than actually fixing it. Plus, there’s no precision!
Q-tips. In the words of Grumpy Cat: NO.

I like you, too, angled eyeliner brush.
If you’re a makeup brush fanatic you probably have an extra (clean) angled eyeliner brush in your drawer somewhere. Go ahead and pick it up. An angled liner brush provides the precision and control we want for this clean-up job. It’ll remove a crisp line of makeup in a flash.
Just use the pump from the micelle solution, and wipe most of it off on a paper towel. You want it to be damp and not dripping wet. Then apply the cleansing solution along the excess liner.
Redraw the line, and smize. 🙂
I love me a crisp cat eye. Mrrrowww.
